Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: A deep ruby-brown body under a foamy mocha colored head. Light foamy lacing appears in little worm-like shapes on the glass.

Aroma: Faint chocolate and lots of toasted grains, toasted bread, and malts.

Taste: Much like the aroma, a chocolatey malt-driven experience occurs and is exclamated with toasted malts and grains. Very clean and smooth.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium, creamy, smooth.

Overall: Probably one of my favorite Tallgrass beers. So tasty and drinkable.

Maybe personal preference, but I really like this if I'm going to drink 4 or more beers at a time. It takes the place of a miller lite

I am actually not certain from where this CAN came. I think that tone77 dropped it off in his latest batch for me, but it seems odd that he did not review it himself. I would be highly flattered to think that he only got one CAN and passed it on to me. The CANQuest (TM) forges ahead!

From the CAN: "The original Pub Ale from Tallgrass"; "Original 2007 Formula"; "Just ask for a Tallgrass!"; "A fine Brown Ale with mild and rich flavors to win friends and influence enemies."

The Crack and inverted Glug went smoothly, right up until it started creating a massive head above a pseudo-cascading action and I was forced to back off. Color was a deep-copper with NE-quality clarity (SRM = ~ 34). Settling, I had two fingers of dense, foamy, light-tan head, like the top of a mocha shake. Nose was syrupy sweet and slightly buttery. I felt as though I were sitting down to pancakes. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was, well, mild. Not too sweet, not at all bitter, and with just enough diacetyl that even I could discern it (and usually, I CANnot). Given the style's descriptor(s) on this site, I would say that they nailed it. Finish was semi-sweet, not over the top in terms of its sweetness in any way. This, combined with its relatively low ABV, made for a nice nightcap. I am going to retire for the day after I finish. I guess that if you are looking for a sessionable beer, you could do way worse than some of these.

I like this beer! Poured a bit cold out of the can, but with a large, fluffy, frothy, foamy, light tan head that soon settles to a light cover and some lace. Color is a clear mahogany with some bubble trails. Aroma is a fresh malt, molasses, grain, hop. Flavor's like nose and light with a touch of bitter at the end. Body is odd as it's good on one hand, yet a bit thin too. Carbonation is good. Finish is like flavor, has bitter going to sweet, and has some length. Pretty good drinking stuff all in all.
